An International Service Built on Tiny Profits Per Pound Some industries have been able to get in step with war demands more quickly than others. In many cases mighty plants have sprung up but at a prodigious cost. The packing industry was able to adapt itself to unheard of demands more quickly, perhaps, than any other industry. And this was because the vast equipment of packing plants, refrigerator cars, branch houses, etc., had been gradually developed to its present state of efficiency, so that in the crucial hour it became a mighty international system for war service. And how had this development taken place? Not by making vast inroads into the capi tal wealth of the country, but largely by using, from year to year, a portion of the profits, to provide for expansion. Swift & Company's profits have always been so tiny, compared with sales, that they have had practic ally ho effect on the price of meat (amounting to only a fraction of a cent per pound). And yet the owners of the business have been content with reasonable returns on their capital, and have been able, year , after year, to put part of the profits back into the business to provide for its expansion. These fractions of tiny profits have been repaid to to the public many fold in the form of better service, and better and cheaper meat, and made it possible for Swift & Company to meet, undaunted, the sudden cry for meat for overseas. Could any other method of financing a vital industry involve less hardship to the people of the country? Could there be a better instance of true "profit -sharing" than this return in added usefulness and in national preparedness ? Swift & Company, U. S. A. Naturally.

Public Health Service Warns Public Against Tuberculosis, One Million Cases Tubercu losis in United States Each a Source of Danger. Influenza Convalescents Should Have Lungs Examined Colds Which Hang On Often Beginning of Tuberculosis. No Cause for Alarm If Tuberculosis Is Recognized Early Patent Medi cines Not to Be Trusted. Beware tuberculosis after In fluenza. No need to worry if you take precautions in time. Don't diagnose your own con dition. Have your doctor exam ine your lungs several times at monthly intervals. Build up your strength with right living, good food and plenty of fresh air. Don't waste money on patent medicines advertised to cure tu berculosis. Become a fresh-air crank and enjoy life. i Washington, D. C. (Special.) Ac- ! cording to a report made to the United ! States Public Health Service, the epi- ! demlc of influenza In Spain has al- j ready caused an increase in the preva lence and deaths from pulmonary tu berculosis. A similar association be- tween influenza and tuberculosis was recently made by Sir Arthur News holme, the chief medical officer of the English public health service, in his analysis of the tuberculosis death rate in England. In order that the people of the Unit ed States may profit by the experience of other countries Surgeon General Rupert Blue of the United States Pub lic Health Service has just issued a warning emphasizing the need of spe cial precautions at the present time. "Experience seems to indicate," says the Surgeon General, "that persons whose resistance has been weakened by an attack of influenza are peculiar ly susceptible to tuberculosis. With millions of its people recently affected with influenza this country now of fers conditions favoring the spread of tuberculosis." One Million Consumptives in the United States. "Then you consider this a serious menace?" was asked. "In my opinion it is, though I hasten to add It is-distinctly one against which the people can guard. So far as one can estimate j there are at present about one million j cases of tuberculosis in the United j States. There is unfortunately no j complete census available to show ex- ! actly the number of tuberculosis per- sons in each state despite the fact that most of the states have made the dis ease reportable. In New York city, where reporting has been in force for many years, over 35,000 cases of tu berculosis are registered with the De partment of Health. Those familiar with the situation believe that the ad dition of unrecognized and unreported cases would make the number .nearer 50,000. The very careful health sur vey conducted during the past two years in Framingham, Mass., revealed 200 cases of tuberculosis in a popula tion of approximately 15,000. If these proportions hold true for the United I States as a whole they would indicate that about one in every hundred per sons is tuberculous. Each of these constitutes a source of danger to be guarded against." What to Do. In his statement to the public Sur geon General Blue points out how those who have had influenza should protect themselves against tuberculo sis. "All who have recovered from in fluenza," says the Surgeon General, "should have their lungs carefully ex amined by a competent physician. In fact, it is desirable to have several ex aminations made a month apart. Such examinations cannot be made through the clothing nor can they be carried out in two or three minutes. If the lungs are found to be free from tuber culosis every effort should be made to keep them so. This can be done by right living, good food and plenty of fresh air." Danger bigns. The Surgeon General warned espe- j claly against certair langer signs, such as "decline" and "colds which hang on." These, he explained, were often the beginning of tuberculosis. "If you do not get, well promptly, if your cold seems to hang on or your health and strength decline, remember that these are often the early signs of tuberculo sis. Place yourself at once under the care of a competent physician. Tuber culosis is curable in the early stages. Patent Medicines Dangerous in Tuber culosis. "Above all do not trust in the mis leading statements of unscrupulous patent medicine fakers. There is uo specific medicine for the cure of tuber culosis. The money spent on such medicines is thrown away ; jt should he spent instead for good food and de cent living." WELL & STRONG WAS A WRECK 'Ts a Very Interesting Story Louisiana Lady Tells About What Carrlui Did for Her. Echo, La. "For sixteen years, un til a year ago," writes Mrs. J. O. Guer inger, of this place, "I suffered and suffered from all kinds of pain, until I got so run-down and weak I couldn't walk across the room. . .1 was a physi cal wreck... I kept getting worse and worse and was confined to my bed for three months... Then some friends of mine ad vised me to try Cardui. After using three bottles... I was much improved ...In a month I was able to get up ...and do a little work, and soon after was built-up, well and strong. . . I used 13 bottles of Cardui all to gether. Have been well and strong ever since. I am giving Cardui now to my daughter. It did me so much good. I want her to try it. I am glad to be able to make this statement so other sufferers may be benefited. I can never be thankful enough for what Cardui did for me." Many thousands of women have had similar experiences with Cardui, the woman's tonic. Try it, if you suffer pain, feel run . down and weak.
